Symbolic Still Lives
Various Locations


Drawing and painting are ways I investigate what is important to me. Active mark making enables me to find the qualities that make a particular object meaningful.  For example, birds’ nests are interesting forms because they are natural objects that have been made by animals for a clear purpose.  When I draw them, I am interested in the weaving energy that was used in their creation.  The end result isn’t a representation of the nest but is a representation of the energy created in looking at the nest.  By using different color combinations and mark making, I create the energy I’m seeking to generate through the process of drawing what I see. The birds’ nests and other objects become even more interesting as I place them together into compositions, creating meaning through association with each other.
